About the book:
Islam is often misundestood because of certain fundamentalists who have turned jihad into a misnomer and lead the youth astray. This book digs the truth out of the closet and clears the haze off the myths which have been passed off as holy Preachings. The articles reflect the author's impeccable understanding of Islam and Qur'anic teachings. Sensitive issues like gender and feminism along with other commonly debated theories on science, corporal punishment, Hindutva, cow slaughter and violence have been astutely dealth with. Ali discourses on several disputed issues and quotes extensively from Qur'an. He unravels the mystery of the "Missing Verse" in whose guise people take undue liberties and also demystifies the world kafir. He refuted those who preach that science and Islam are Oxymorons and unveils the hidden similarities between the two. He gives even arguments on the rights of women and does not shy away from admitting the shortcoming of people in interpreting them. He dives into the unfathomable and rediscovers the origin of Islam.
